"State budget decisions to have reaching effects on UNC"

"The proposal would reduce state funding for UNC-system schools
by 14.6 percent or $407 million,
including a cut of $35 million for the system’s need-based financial aid program.

...course sections at N.C. State
will have to be reduced after the elimination of about 140 to 150 faculty positions.

And chancellors likely won’t be able to rely on the crutch of supplemental tuition increases
to offset the cuts in state funding.

Tuition for both N.C. State and UNC students increased by $750,
the maximum amount allowed in last year’s state budget.

Ross...advised against further tuition hikes addition to average increases of $208 for undergraduate residents
and $650 for nonresidents already approved by the board this year."
